SIDELIGHTS: András Bozóki told CA: "I already wanted a typewriter as a Christmas present from my parents at the age of nine. I enjoyed reading a lot of novels in my teenage years and started to write political essays and journalistic articles during my university years. At that time Hungary was not a free country, so I had no chance to be a publicist, so I decided to be a scholar in the social sciences. Politically I was influenced by the then emerging underground democratic opposition, and especially by the regime change and transition to democracy in 1989 and 1990. George Orwell, Arthur Koestler, Iván Szelényi, Miklós Szabó, Alexis de Tocqueville, and anarchist writers influenced me strongly.

"My interest in politics and society was shaped by history, and particularly certain historical events such as the Polish Solidarity Movement in 1980–81, the collapse of communism in central and eastern Europe in 1989–91, contemporary issues of war and peace, and the processes of democratization."
